Miss Keevil Bray Class

Week beginning 6th July 2020

 

Hello everybody, 

I hope you are all really excited about coming to school for your transition day. We can't wait to see you! Reception will be in on Tuesday 7th July from 8.45 am - 3 pm. Drop off and pick up will be from the hall.   You will be spending the day with me and your new teacher for September.  It will be a fun day and we will be taking part in a socially distanced sports day in the afternoon. 

Please make sure that you wear sports clothes with a hat and a coat and bring a water bottle/lunch (school dinners are also available). 

 

Mrs Alford will be doing her last phone calls next week and you will be seeing me on the transition days so if you have any worries or questions then you can talk to either of us then.  You can also continue to e-mail in home learning and any questions you may have to deputy@southmoltonprimary.devon.sch.uk. 


Please see the activities below to support you with this week's home learning. If the Oak Academy lessons https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule and the BBC videos-https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/group/p089nk5f  are enough for you then please continue using these. If you have more time and want some variety then please use the resources below. Remember there's  no right way to do home learning - do what ever is best for you and your child.

 

Take care, 

Miss Keevil.

As the weather gets hotter some of you might be thinking about a visit to the beach πŸ– 

When we are at the beach there are some people who help us to keep safe .

The RNLI life guards will be there to help if people get into trouble in the water .β›΅οΈπŸ„πŸ»‍β™€οΈπŸŠ‍♂️

The life boat crew and life guards need special clothes to ensure that they are safe ,dry and warm while they rescue people .

Can you design an outfit for them to wear? You might like to design an outfit for a hot day on the beach or maybe you could design an outfit for when they go out to sea on the lifeboat .🌊

Thank to all those parents who told me during their weekly phone call that they enjoyed sharing a story with their child. So here’s another adventure with Kipper to enjoy on a
rainy day β›ˆ
If you would rather listen to an interactive story read by a professional story teller ,just pop along to the British Library website πŸ“š
  Where you can enjoy “ Little Red Riding Hood “ read as you have never hear it before !
Or maybe you would rather hear “The dish runs away with the spoon “
look out for the differences !How many can you spot ? 
After each story you will find fun craft activities .
